Willie I have an old book written by Perry Lester Miles in the early 1900's. I'm trying to figure out the Dush's and the Miles. I know Catherine Dush b.1799 d.2/18/1852 married Stephen Miles b.6/4/1789 d.1/23/1862 and they had 9 children 1. William b.1/27/1816 d.6/7/1891 2.John Dush Miles b.3/1/1823 d.11/26/1905 3. Sarah b.7/23/1821 d.3/26/1822 4. Margaret b.8/19/1825 d.4/16/1899 married her cousin Washington Holton b.5/3/1822 d.5/27/1902 they had 2 children I know of William G b.1848 and John M Matilda b.5/17/1829 d.9/29/1851 7.Barbara b.11/5/1831 d.7/5/1863 married David Wilkin 8. Mary Ann b.4/29/1834 d.10/25/1869 Married ?-Souslin 9.Maria Catherine b.3/28/1837 d.2/23/1843. Also John Dush Miles son above married Sarah Games b.11/28/1819. Also William Miles son above married Margaret Eliza Lyons born in Ireland 10/14/1826 d.10/14/1863. They were married 4/14/1842 they had 9 children: 1.Stephen John b.2/12/1843 d.7/21/1863 he died in the Civil War. He was a bachelor. 2.Samuel b.10/26/1844 d.12/23/1902 married Harriet Seward they had no children. 3.Elmira b.11/8/1846 d.? married Johnathon Wilkin they had one daughter Viola b.1868 d.1947 Never married. 4. Mary Elnor b.11/6/1848 d.? married James Comstock they had 3 children William,(married Eliza Hough) Czar,(bachelor) and David(bachelor). 5. Matilda Catherine b.3/7/1851 d.? married Czar Fisk (they had 2 children William (married June Lyons) and Amanda(married Noble Porter). 6.Margaret Ann b.4/8/1853 married Nehemiah Pound (they had 2 children Amzi and Corey. 7.Ardila b.10/25/1855 d.1/23/1888 married George Divan (they had one daughter Myrtle she married Amzi Jones they had three children George,Lowell,and Wayne). 8.Harriet b.3/1/1859 d.? married Oliver Smith. 9.Amanda b.10/27/1861 d.? Married Neil Culleson they had five children Minta,Leona,Mabel,Jay and Chalmers. William Miles the father of these 9 children married a 2nd time 4/27/1864 a year after his first wife Margaret died. He married Sarah Lyons b.2/27/1825 d.3/20/1911.( this may have been his 1st wife's sister?) They had one child together Clorinda b.5/21/1868 d.? (she married George R. Anderson they had one son Walter he married Margaret and they had one son William) Get's very confusing!!!! Anyway if you have any info on the Dush's I would appreciate it! I really got sidetracked. I have an Adam Dush and John Dush who were brothers. I don't have births but I do have deaths. Adam died 10/21/1826, John died 3/6/1829. So far all I can figure is Adam is married to Eleanor they have a daughter Margaret Dush who marries William Alban they have one son Andrew Alban b.7/23/1834 d.1/6/1855. John Dush marries a Catherine, I thought they have 4 children Adam Dush Jr.b.? d.3/17/1848, Henry Dush b.11/18/1817 d.? I see that Catherine's birthdate is 1790 and Susannah's birthdate is 1799 which means they probably don't go with John's family. I have no dates for the Barbara Dush that marries John Miles b.1791 d.2/1/1860. All I have is they were married 12/9/1827 and they had three children Stephen W. Miles b.11/18/1828 d.1/18/1916, Catherine Miles b.9/26/1830 d.6/12/1833, and Rachel Ann b.8/3/1832 d.? Also My Susannah Dush b.1799 d.5/11/1859 married John Shannon on 11/9/1820, John Shannon was born in 1786. Some of the information here is furnished from Will H. Miles he was born 3/3/1865 you must remember the person who wrote all this down Perry Lester Miles was born 10/15/1873(He was also a General!) Some information was also taken from family Bibles. Perry Miles retired to Johnstown,Licking Co. Ohio.
